Luggage compartment roller shade, 2011

Does anyone else noticed that it does not come with the car?

Not until I saw the disclaimer on a piece of paper did I bothered to look and realize it's not there! Absolutely insane, I didn't see that as an option either, and to rub it in more, my X3 had that, comes standard!

Just curious, as I am getting ready to order a 2011......what paper was the disclaimer? Is there a physical slot for the shade in the back. My 2010 had one, as well as every other SUV around.

Its printed (offset not laser) on official BMW letterhead (so its not from the dealer), it said the vehicle does not come with the cover and another thing (which I don't remember what its was), will look it up when I get back. I am going to be calling my sales guy now to see whatsup. Only he's off today and tomorrow.

I don't think they forgot to put it on the assembly line, if they did then how do you explain the letter?

Yes, there is the slot / rail for it.

Its a small piece of paper that was included in the black leather binder. It says, contrary to your owner's manual, your vehicle will not be equipped with the luggage compartment cover and running board (which I did not order).

To all of you who will be picking up your X5s in the near future, make sure you check for this and demand it be included since one poster is saying they are removing them and are selling them for an extra $600.

When I picked up my car I immediately noticed the missing cargo cover.
It is only last night when I opened the sealed manual that I found the addendum page you are referring to, and I realized no aluminum running boards on my car either.

Both were included in the car I test drove, and I expected both to be included in the ordered vehicle.

The BMW USA 2011 X5 SA pictures site still lists the running boards, but the build your own vehicle site does not:
http://www.bmwusa.com/standard/conte...iagallery.aspx
http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Conte...N70S+ctReasVQ=

I should have paid better attention, and I wish I'd read this thread before I took delivery.

Mine CA tells me it will not come with it and it's $600 if I want it. He says bmw is not including it with the car anymore?!?! I've ordered a base 2011 35d with hardly any options. Maybe this is why? Is it coming with a specific package now?

$600 is nuts for that thing. I hope we find it is included in one of the packages, eg: premium, or other, or better yet this is a supplier hiccup, and has not been communicated. I am trying to be optimistic.

WTF?! There are two posters from above that said they have it. So what's the option / package that contains this cover?

That sucks... that means there was a month or so production range where the X5 came with the roller shade. Mine was a build 17 week.

Yeah... ridiculous... I'm thinking it's being delivered with the car, but removed and resold to make an extra buck. Please keep us posted. I don't pick up til end of the month. where is the fine print showing this no longer comes with the car?
